The fourth and sixth editions, "A Star Is Born" and "It's A Wise Child", were seemingly wiped by the BBC after transmission; the only copies currently known to exist were recorded off-air, on Long-Play VHS, from Australian late-night screenings in Adelaide towards the close of the 1980s. Unfortunately as these Seven Network transmissions were edited (the station could only splice ad breaks into the episodes by cutting some programme content) these two installments remain slightly incomplete.

This is a BBC sitcom set in 1945. It's about a Royal Artillery Concert Party. The first four series are set in India; the latter four are set in Burma.
This is painfully bad to watch, because all of the members of the concert party are appallingly bad entertainers. After I watched it, I read that the characters are supposed to be awful entertainers - and that's what's meant to be the main source of the show's humour. However, that makes them unpleasant to watch and listen to - and it's just the same bad joke repeated in every episode. It's also unrealistic - if all members of a concert party were bad entertainers, they'd be fired.
